Debian/Lenny with Xen 3.2.1 on a 2.6.26-2-xen-amd64 kernel is running a
production server with a couple of Windows VMs and a couple of Linux VMs
on LVM. The server's hardware got recently upgraded and I used the
opportunity to add Debian/Squeeze with Xen 4.0.1 on a 2.6.32-5-xen-amd64
kernel to the system (dual boot).

I'd like to take my time testing Xen 4.0.1. Does anyone see any issue
running the Windows VMs on both systems (going back & forth) ie.
normally running on the good old 3.2.1 but occassionally running on
4.0.1 for tests? The Windows 2003 VMs are running the GPL PV drivers
(; are these compatible with both versions of Xen?

Are there any differences between 3.2.1 and 4.0.1 that I should be aware
of with regard to this?
